The new love in my life…

I have a new love in my life. He's quiet, a classic, comfy to hold and hug to me. He lets me touch him whenever I want, enjoys my cuddling with him on the couch while I watch tv, comes out with me to social events and joins in with enthusiasm. He, like me, enjoys…

Loving music and dance

Tomorrow afternoon, I'm heading out to go dancing. There's a restaurant in Halifax, My Father's Moustache, that has a house band. Every Saturday, they play three hours of blues and dancing music. I've been once before, and was astonished to find that I could still dance, despite my MS, and that I loved it so…

My ol’ friend the blues…

Hafta tell you, the blues came on today and they were hearty. I don't know whether it's the thought of my ex getting married in a couple of weeks (which fills me with an odd kind of despair and anger that he is good with this marriage thing whereas I remain afraid of commitment and fight it…
